Cross cultural understanding

I wanted to utilise technology to aid in the cross cultural relationships between home and international students at The University of the West of England. To do so I conducted research into why students from different cultures were having trouble integrating with one another, and what issues they faced when moving to the UK to study.

 

During this project I conducted research by:

  • Reading articles that focused on the differences in communication styles of different cultures
  • Spoke with the Coordinating Chaplin for the Universities Faith and Spirituality team
  • Conducted interviews with both international and home students to find out what issues they were experiencing.
